I'm assuming C++ here, forgive me:

I think it depends on the toolchain you want to use.

It might be best to start it on windows. Having a build environment that mirrors your linux environment on windows will make it easier to build for both platforms.

You can use this to accomplish it - usually: Mingw-w64[^]

That way you can use things like gcc and clang under windows.

I like to use VS Code because it scans for your compilers automatically, and integrates with things like CMake and make.

The biggest deal will be to get your code to compile for clang and gcc

after that you should be able to use the same tools on both systems, as long as you're using something like CMake
Real programmers use butterflies
